Studioteka is a small dynamic firm with a variety of commercial and residential projects located in a beautiful loft space in the heart of DUMBO. We vary in number from 5 to more with the addition of a couple of freelancers who occasionally help us out. In contrast to a stuffy corporate office, you’ll find our studio relaxed, friendly and informal, and fun to work in!
What we’re looking for: dedicated and motivated individuals looking for a hands-on work experience with as much responsibility as you can handle. Maturity and a high level of motivation are important. An exciting new project has started, so we are looking for interns as well as people with 3-5 years of office work experience or more to join us full or part time. For the internship, previous practical experience in building or making things (whether experience in architecture, interiors, furniture or product design) is a plus, as are skills in 3D visualization. The intern would participate in research and preliminary design for the summer project, as well as participating in ongoing projects in the office.
We are also looking for people with a fair degree of practical experience on a job site, great design and interpersonal skills, as well as a high degree of comfort in putting together drawing sets and client presentations at a wide variety of scales. A strong interest in applying and furthering Studioteka’s practical research on innovative design for climate change is key. All candidates should have excellent communication skills and be well organized and self-motivated team players. An adventurous spirit and a love of design are a must, as is the ability to work in an informal design studio atmosphere. Minimum requirement for Junior Architect position would be a 5 year B.Arch or a B.A. with a major in Architecture. M.Arch degree is a plus. Compensation will depend upon the skill and experience level of applicants and the mix of projects in the office.
**UPDATE** We are working on an exciting project to turn our work on 2100: A Dystopian Utopia into an immersive three dimensional experience and welcome interns who are interested in our work on solutions to the climate crisis. We prefer candidates for the Junior Architect position who are located in the New York City metro area. Studioteka is currently working virtually with visits to job sites on an as-needed basis. Masks and proper hygiene are a requirement for fieldwork.
Start date: Now. Prefer one to three month term, minimum, for intern (can also be a few afternoons/mornings/week). Candidates should have a working knowledge of Autocad, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and In-Design. Preference will be given to candidates who also have proficiency in 3D Studio Max, Rhino with Vray , Enscape, Lumion or other 3D programs and animation software. An interest and a passion for innovative sustainable design that intelligently blends research and practicality is key. A working knowledge of Spanish is also a plus.
